James Y. Liau, MD, FACS

Biography

My name is James Liau; I practice the complete spectrum of plastic and reconstructive surgery. I also specialize in pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery and craniofacial surgery, focusing on comprehensive treatment of children with cleft lips and palates, congenital craniofacial deformities, as well as other more unique congenital problems requiring pediatric plastic surgery.

After graduating from medical school at UK, I went onto an internship at UC-Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. I returned to the University of Kentucky to complete a plastic and reconstructive surgery residency and then pursued a fellowship in pediatric reconstructive surgery and craniofacial surgery at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
